Corrosion is defined as the degradation or loss of function of materials due to environmental effects. Corrosion has a huge impact on the economy of a country. This depends on the corrosive nature of environment of the country. Financial loss due to corrosion is inevitable but is controllable with the aid of proper corrosion management systems. Most of the countries use different methods for implementing corrosion management system in order to minimize the corrosion loss. In Sri Lanka the concern about corrosion is at a minimal stage but having a corrosion management system is becoming an essential requirement for future Sri Lanka. Implementation of corrosion management system has to be an all-country effort which has to be done with a much careful assessment of corrosive environment. There are several approaches for the assessment of corrosive environment and many researchers have been conducted all over the world. Evaluation of corrosivity as a function of environmental variables, which is known as corrosion modeling, and classification of corrosivity of atmosphere are widely used methods to assess the corrosive environment. In this paper the authors discuss about several existing environmental evaluation methods and models.
